Thanks for the correction! :)

Multiple royal bloggers have mentioned that several German relations have been invited and will attend although I haven't seen any official confirmation from StJP.

The selected guest list appears to have been released primarily for the media. The focus of the release was to highlight those individuals StJP believes the media will need/want to know as they prepare to commentate on the day.

I've read that Laura Parker Bowles will be sitting on the Middleton side near where her daughter will be seated. Just in case.... :)

I've seen a lot of people upset by the BRF's representation at foreign weddings. However, if you look at the weddings of the current Crown Princely couples, IMO, the BRF was well-represented:

July 1995: CP Pavlos and Marie Chantal (Greece): QEII, Prince Philip, Prince Charles, Duke/Duchess of Kent and Gloucester, Prince/Princess Michael
December 1999: CP Philippe and Mathilde (Belgium): Prince Charles
August 2001: CP Haakon and Mette-Marit (Norway): Prince Charles, Wessexes
February 2002: CP Willem-Alexander and Maxima (Netherlands): Prince Charles
May 2004: CP Felipe and Letizia (Spain): Prince Charles
May 2004: CP Fred and Mary (Denmark): Wessexes
June 2010: CP Victoria and Daniel (Sweden): Wessexes

The Wessexes may have attended the Danish and Swedish weddings because they are much closer in age to the couples. Also, for the Swedish wedding in particular the Wessexes may have asked to attend because they knew the couple getting married. But other than that...the heir attended the weddings of his peers (even though they are much younger).

William was a student at Eton or St. Andrews during every single one of these weddings except for the last one.

We know that Laura Lopes' daughter Eliza (aged 3), the granddaughter of The Duchess of Cornwall will be having her mother very conveniently seated where she will be able to "rescue" the child should it become necessary. I would bet my last donut though that the parents of all children in the bridal party are definitely going to be in attendance too.

I sure Prince William & Catherine would invite Laura Lopes and Tom Parker- Bowles as they are William's step siblings.I agree all the parents of the children would be invited as it could be necessary if one of the children get scared.

I can't find it right now but its a clip that is quite amusing. 4 year old Prince William was a page boy in the wedding party for Andrew and Sarah.
In the clip, Andrew and Sarah are leaving for the honeymoon and it looks like HM is chasing after them. What she was really doing is chasing William that was running after the carriage. . That's HM being a "gramma".

You never know what kids are going to do.

To be honest... if its not here, its not been released yet. The one posted here is the official one released and I don't think there's been another yet.

Will there be a thread for pre-wedding events regarding photos of royal guests arriving in the city, the pre wedding dinner etc?

Either Viscount Severn or Savannah Phillips, I'd imagine.

I believe Viscount Severn will likely be there since his sister is in the wedding and his parents will be there, Ms Phillips may still be to little but you never know.....

I know that The Spencer Family will be at the wedding. Has any one heard if they will be going to the Buckingham Palace reception, or the evening reception ?

Is it really so that some of the royals are invited to the church but do not get to go to the evening reception? Isn't that a bit rude?

Does anyone know if the Obamas are invited? I remember reading earlier that Michelle Obama was really hoping for an invitation but that they weren't going to get one. I think it is kind of weird the message they are sending with the invitations. They want to keep it small but they are inviting loads of royalty and foreign dignitaries. Then they leave out some big names that you would think would be included if they are supposed to invite world leaders there. Is there a rule of some kind or are they just drawing names out of a hat?

I wonder if anyone from my country has been invited. I don't care too much whether our president is invited or not. I know she'll be bawling her eyes out if she isn't since she seems to fancy herself a bit of a royal too...

No the Obamas aren't invited- it's not a State event so not all heads of state are invited. As for the evening reception it's for friends and close family only, it's small only 300 plp ( that's relative to the 2,000 invited)

The Obamas are not attending and are not known to have been invited.
